Leon Bridges Claims The Pop Music Crown With “Smooth Sailin”


We first told you about Leon Bridges‘ new single, “Smooth Sailin’” when it premiered online at the beginning of the month. Now, just a week later, the Texas native has shared the song’s official video.

The setup for “Smooth Sailin'” is simple and fitting, especially when one considers the numerous influences that inspired Bridges to create the sound he promotes today. Dressed in a green suit and surrounded by his fantastic band, Bridges appears on an empty soundstage for a straightforward performance of the dancehall-ready single. It’s beautifully lit, wonderfully edited, and as a finished product, it evokes a sense of organic ‘fun’ rarely found in music today. You can enjoy the video below.

We are still two weeks from the release of Leon’s debut album, Coming Home, and anticipation for the record’s arrival only continues to grow. We called Leon Bridges the next big thing back in October, and that remains the case to this day. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on “Smooth Sailin'” as soon as possible.
